3. Crowne Plaza Jerusalem
Crowne Plaza Jerusalem is the worst Crowne Plaza hotels in israel with the worst club lounge in our listing. The hotel is located on a hill at the entrance to Jerusalem. The lobby is spacious with some shops, but the rooms are small and basic and the bathroom amenities are not noteworthy either. The blackout curtains reportedly don’t work with light coming around the edge of them.
The club lounge offers drinks and light snacks but not enough to fill you up, so this hotel does not come highly recommended, even though it does have a club lounge.
Note that The Ritz-Carlton, Herzliya is one of the best luxury hotels in the whole of Israel, but it is also one of the few Ritz-Carlton hotels without an executive club lounge.
